Zing! Double zing for the spoiler title!

Sigh. No love for Liberty of London prints.

Perhaps I should throw it in with the ties you're selling. My toff grandpa wants his golfing ties back.

So what was the clever part?

I saw this in the store about 2 weeks ago on the mannequin. I asked Frank what is was because i liked it. I remember because there is a jewish law against wool and linen (shatnez) so i can't have it :(

When you guys come in for a fitting, do you guys usually prefer to deal with Frank and only Frank?  How is Scott Troia?  Is he knowledgeable and is his stuff on par with Frank?  I'm asking because it looks like Scott usually deals with clients in the Manhattan location and Frank doesn't come out from Brooklyn too often.  It's a pain in the ass for me to go out to Brooklyn and I would rather stick to going to the Manhattan location.

Every time I go to the manhattan location I've met with Frank. I prefer to deal with Frank directly because he's a cutter and I've only dealt with him in the past for years so I like the consistency.

Hmm, ok, I think I will request to deal with Frank directly, too.

Scott is very knowledgable and creative. If I'm not mistaken he worked at Turnbull and Asser for a while. I've met with him on a couple of occasions and each time the resident tailor was there as well if you that is your worry.

My jacket in the works. Fabric is Harrisons Mystique 9oz wool. Jeremy, Scott, and Frank have been great in this process. I hope to get this one wrapped up before month end. [IMG]

Exquisite buttonholes from my jacket. Very nicely done

Ercoles bespoke vs Ercoles MTM - how different a product would I be getting one vs the other? Is it precision of fit, customizability of features, or something about the construction?
post #1155 of 1185
Probably all of the above. The big one is one is made in China and one is made in New York. You should call them and ask directly though.
